My reader was left for 1month with battery empty and after i turn it on it starts with "restoring factory settings" and my whole data was deleted! I the books from Kobo library was easy to return,but the other content (e-books,my pdf files e.t.c.)was erased forever. This is unexeptable! I wrote e-mail to Kobo,thay replied with: sorry for your data loss:)

Cons
Poor quality frame
• • •

I am the owner of Kobo Glo who were thinking to buy Aura HD. I checked it in th store and decided not to upgrade.

The
screen of Kobo Aura HD is great, but the frame is made from a very
cheap plastic. It is absolutely undurable and even makes CRACK-sound if
you hold it in your hands. If you look at the picture, you can see, that
the frame is not solid and has two parts. The device is falling apart
then you carry it in your backpack. There are no quality accessaries.
Most of cases are made from textile and you have to replace them almost
every quarter.

Kobo Aura HD is a great example of how the good
initiative can easy fail because the product development team has not
enough vision and effort to make it great.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
